About Lily & Arthur's

Named after our Grandparents, and inspired by our childhood - Lily & Arthur’s is a small family business established in April 2014. A brother and sister collaboration, we are believers in providing the whole experience from the environment customers sit in to the food they eat and the service they receive. Our menu is simple but homemade - sandwiches, salads & soups and where possible we source local fresh produce. All our cakes and pastries are baked by us on site using the finest quality ingredients – our award-winning chocolate brownies being an all-time customer favourite.
Based just outside Wigan Town Centre, we have a small 52 seat dining room which also serves freshly ground coffee and loose leaf tea in pots to compliment the simple menu.

Best pot of tea in Wigan, loveliest sandwich (“Mum’s Picnic”), followed by cake, all served on the prettiest crockery and in lovely welcoming setting. No longer waitress service, you have to order at the counter, but not a problem. I’d still award 5 star rating as staff very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I have recommended Lily & Arthur’s to so many friends, family, colleagues... see you again soon :)

Odd approach to service, it feels like you are doing them an inconvenience when asking for things

Another lovely lunch. Tea and sandwich feels so special at Lily & Arthur’s. Would love to try something different, but cannot resist my favourite. I vary it up by having a sandwich or a salad! Love the REAL tea. Love the setting, the china, everything about this place is just comforting and beautiful at the same time. Staff 10/10 as always. See you soon x

Great place with great home cooked foods! A little more expensive that local eateries however the food is of a great standard and locally sourced. Amazing salt beef! Loved the platters! It was a little quiet in our visit, I don’t remember any back ground music etc but it was nice and relaxed. We visited in June which was part of the self service trial. Would recommend!

Didn’t like having no service to order as I had to queue behind people not relaxing start to our cream tea. On the cream tea I would have preferred less cakes and perhaps a warm savoury item like a little piece of quiche, as it was too sweet heavy for an afternoon tea I would not order it again for that reason.

We were very happy with the way you handled my boyfriends nut allergy! All cakes were made with no nuts, which is something we usually struggle with and he usually doesn’t even order desert as they usually contain nuts.
